EKU Ceramics Program Revitalized
A new professor is at the helm of Eastern Kentucky University's ceramics studio. Benjamin Cirgin is now overseeing the program. He plans to renew its focus on student outcomes and increase enrollment by giving students more one-on-one help, improved safety regulations and more career advice.
Cirgin and his studio assistant, Morgan Winter, spent long hours in the studio over winter break preparing for the spring semester by deep cleaning, rearranging and mixing clay. Under Cirgin's mentorship, Winter has learned advanced techniques and skills, such as mixing and glazing techniques and loading skills.
